Comet Data outdated from 1st February
The source for C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) in my SkyTools 3 Pro is listed as: MPEC 2018-Y69.
The source in SkyTools 4 Imaging is listed as: MPEC 2019-B48. The ST4i data looks to be more recent. The value of e is 1.00000 in ST3 Pro and 0.986535000 in ST4i. The other elements are also slightly different.

You could try updating your orbital elements. How far was the calculated position off from your observations? Good enough to find it?
